The Fraisier Cake derives its name from the French word fraise, meaning strawberry. It is a quintessential French dessert that features layers of vanilla mousseline cream (often pistachio flavored) and fresh strawberries. The result? A cake that is both visually stunning and irresistibly delicious. In this video, I will be sharing my recipe for a strawberry cake that offers a fantastic compromise between simplicity and elegance. It is by far the easiest version of this classic dessert, yet it never fails to impress. The star of this Fraisier Cake is the vanilla ganache montée, a light and creamy filling that adds a touch of sophistication to every bite. I will also be showing you how to make the perfect madeleine biscuit, which adds a delectable texture to the cake. Inspired by renowned pastry chef Jean-Baptiste Grangé, this Fraisier Cake is a must-try for any dessert enthusiast. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced baker, this recipe is accessible to all levels of skill.
